A lot of us knew Mr Harris from older brothers and sisters, but to the rest us: this is all we knew about him: “He’s sooooo funny and nice!”, “Mr Harris coming?! Yay!” “He is really great!” And he was really awesome. Mr Harris used to teach at our school, and taught 4th grade with Ms. Gartside. He came to do two plays for us at the assembly. But he needed actors, so who did he chose… us! We did the two Native American tales: The turtle and the bear (kind of like the turtle and the hare) and how the birds got their feathers. The turtle and the bear was about a bear who was very full of himself. He thought he was the tallest, the strongest and the fastest. At first no one disagreed, but when he got to the part about being the fastest a little head popped out of the lake. It was a turtle, and the turtle said the SHE was the fastest. So they decided they should have a race and the turtle won! But after everyone had gone, she revealed that she had tricked bear. The bear was so angry that he had lost he went to sleep and didn’t wake up until spring. From this day on, bears still sleep during the winter, maybe so that they can forget their race with turtle. Turtle may not have been fast in her legs, but she was very fast in her mind. Everybody really liked it. How the birds got their feathers was about a time when birds had no feathers. The creator decided to help. He told them to send up a bird to get a the clothes. The buzzard was chosen. He flew up to the heavens, but could not decide which one clothes he wanted himself. He gave everyone else the others, thinking that the next one would be better, but ended up getting the worst! They were both really fun to act. We can’t find the pictures now but check our blog later to see them!
